The Basics

27-29 octobre 2016
Paris, France

Pitchfork Music Festival Paris is the definitive three day gathering of alternative sounds, providing the European answer to Pitchfork magazine's original Chicago event.

Each edition presents an incredible lineup better than the last, with a program not afraid to explore various musical styles. Expect to hear underground experimental newbies with respected independent greats.

From rock to hip-hop to electronic artists, this is the perfect Autumnal event to soundtrack your darker October.

The Venue

Pitchfork Festival Paris 2016

Grande Halle de La Villette
